You seem to fail to understand every confrontation Diana and Kal have had.

Diana has never once attempted to put Kal down. In every fight they have had she was trying to save him whereas this Kryptonian female was trying to DEFEAT him. Theres a massive difference.

Why would Diana inflict unnecessary harm on Kal? Why would she use pressure points to make him go out of control (and possibly hurt himself OR others)?

It doesnt make sense.

As you noted prior, Diana has used pressure point attacks before. Shes a martial artist. Should she be able to do that? Yes, of course. Would she? Of course not.

Please J. take the day off \:\-\*

It is a perfectly reasonable question, Nerve attacks and pressure points are a quick and harmless means of achieving her objectives in any Superman fight. Stopping and subduing him in an efficient clean manner without having to take his every punch and assault and wondering if you will survive it....

This style of fighting has never been exploited with Superman or his peers which is a shame as it would be interesting to see him face such a superior physically skilled opponent, a real credible challenge.
